Psalms 95:

Come let us praise the Lord!
Let us sing for joy to God, who protects us!
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving
  and sing joyful songs of praise
For the LORD is a mighty God
 a mighty king over all the other Gods.
He rules over the whole earth,
 from the deepest caves to the highest hills,
He rules over the sea , which he made;
 the land also,m which he himself formed.

(1.5).

Simply beautiful, Sir,

This is our samskara, our identity. I sing again -

Come let us praise the Lord!
Let us sing for joy to God, who protects us!
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving
  and sing joyful songs of praise
For the LORD is a mighty God
 a mighty king over all the other Gods.
He rules over the whole earth,
 from the deepest caves to the highest hills,
He rules over the sea , which he made;
 the land also,m which he himself formed.

॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.

The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the LORD: and he
delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly
cast down: for the LORD upholdeth [him with] his hand.


(Psalms 37.23-24)

Mark 2:

Jesus and his disciples including James and John left the synagogue and went straight to the home of Simon and Andrew.
Simon's mother in law was sick in bed with a fever   and as soon as Jesus arrived, took her by the hand and helped her up.
The fever left her and she began to wait for them.  (29-31).

A man was suffering from a dreaded skin disease came to Jesus, knelt down and begged him for help. 'If you want to', he said,
'you can make me clean.'
Jesus was filled with pity and stretched out his hand and touched him. 'I do want to',  he answered, 'Be clean'.
At once the disease left the man and he was clean.  (40-42)

Arunachala Siva.

Honoring the birth of the Lord Jesus and this Beautiful and Magical Holyday


In the countryside close by there were shepherds out in the fields keeping guard over their sheep during the watches of the night.
An angel of the Lord stood over them and the glory of the Lord shone round them. They were terrified,
but the angel said, 'Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people.
Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
And here is a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.'
And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God with the words:
Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace for those he favours.

Luke - Chapter 2

So they hurried away and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger.
When they saw the child they repeated what they had been told about him,
and everyone who heard it was astonished at what the shepherds said to them.
As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart.
And the shepherds went back glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as they had been told.

Luke Chapter 2

He went through the whole Jordan area
proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins,
as it is written in the book of the sayings of Isaiah the prophet:
A voice of one that cries in the desert:
Prepare a way for the Lord, make his paths straight!
Let every valley be filled in, every mountain and hill be levelled,
winding ways be straightened and rough roads made smooth,
and all humanity will see the salvation of God.

Luke Chapter 3

Sri Jewel, the birth of Jesus, always reminds me of Krishna, for some reasons unknown!

Dear Sri Nagaraj, I too can find some connection betwean them. There is something indeed,which links the birth of Jesus to Krishna,some relatedness. It is felt within ones heart.

The LORD says:

I will condemn the person
  who turns away from me
  and puts his trust in man,
  in the strength of mortal man.
HE is like a bush in the desert,
 which grows in dry wilderness,
 on salty ground where nothing else grows.
Nothing good ever happens to him.

But I will bless the person
 who puts his trust in me.
He is like a tree growing near a stream
  and sending roots to the water.
It is not afraid when hot weather comes,
 because its leaves stay green;
 it has no worries when there is no rain;
 it keeps on bearing fruit.

(Jeremiach 17 - 5-8)

Arunachala Siva.

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish,
but have eternal life.
For God didn't send his Son into the world to judge the world,
but that the world should be saved through him.
He who believes in him is not judged.
He who doesn't believe has been judged already,
because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.

Joh 3:16

For he whom God has sent speaks the words of God;
for God gives the Spirit without measure.
The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand

Luke 6.20-26.

Jesus looked at his disciples and said:

Happy are you poor;
 the Kingdom of God is yours!
Happy are you who are hungry now;
 you will be filled!
Happy are you who weep now:
 You will laugh!

Happy are you when people hate you, reject you, insult you, and say that you are evil, all because of the Son of Man!

Be glad when that happens, and dance for joy, because a great reward is kept for you in heaven. For their ancestors
did the very same things to be the prophets.

But how terrible for you who are rich now;
  you will go hungry!
How terrible for you who laugh now;
  you will mourn and weep!

How terrible when all people speak well of you, Their ancestors said the very same things about the false prophets.

****

Arunachala Siva.

Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head

Jesus was making His last journey, to the city of Jerusalem. It was a long trip, and they needed to stop for the night a few times along the way.
 As they approached a town in Samaria (Samaritans were enemies of the Jews) some of Jesus’ friends went ahead to prepare for His arrival. But the Samaritans there would not welcome Jesus, because He was headed for Jerusalem. The disciples thought the town should be punished and asked Jesus if He would call down fire from heaven to destroy the town. Jesus told them that that is not how He does things, they would just go to another town.
 When one person along the way said he would follow Jesus wherever He went, Jesus warned him it wouldn’t be a glamorous path. He said, “Foxes have dens, birds have their nests, but the Son of Man (God made flesh) has nowhere to lay His head.”

Spiritual living means giving up the 'Ego'(Head).The words of Lord Jesus always go straight to the Heart like a shaft of lightning that penetrates Rocky hard ignorance, breaking it to smithereens.
